  • Chicago, IL (1888PressRelease) March 22, 2011 - Beginning this month, Timberline Knolls launches a first-time partnership with the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (iaedp) Foundation to bring a free quarterly series, Webinars on Wellness, that will focus on physical and emotional issues, hope, healing and recovery for the eating disorder professional community. "Family Healing and Communication," the first program in the series, will take place on Wednesday, March 23, from 1-2 p.m. CDT and feature Stan Selinger, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist and Family Therapy Coordinator at Timberline Knolls, and Marcia Nickow, PsyD, CADC, CGP, Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Primary Therapy Coordinator at Timberline Knolls. The first webinar will discuss the importance of concurrent healing and recovery for friends and family. Timberline Knolls has applied for 1 CE for counselors, social workers and psychologists for the one-hour session.

    The new iaedp/Timberline Knolls webinar series will serve to educate the professional community on a national basis on the serious issues pertaining to eating disorders and substance abuse recovery. It is Timberline Knolls' latest effort in furthering the advancement of its speakers bureau, the Clinical Development Institute, beginning with Drs. Selinger and Nickow.
    "Eating disorders affect not only the person suffering from the disease, but also their families and loved ones. The importance of family in recovering from an eating disorder or any mental illness cannot be overstated," says Dr. Selinger. "Webinars are an effective way to communicate with those individuals who seek information, help and guidance in order to find lifelong recovery from their disease, and for the loved ones and other family members trying to support them in the best way possible."

    Following the first webinar program, three more will take place this year in June, September and December covering a variety of topics. CEs will be offered for each webinar in the series.
